STEP UP! Allies for Women’s Equity (Part 1)

Date: 09/29/2011

Time: 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Location: Room 1-149 Carlson School of Management

Cost: Free

Description:

How do you respond to the rumors that women have reached equality? What can you to say when you hear a sexist joke, or when you think someone is being put in an uncomfortable situation? In this interactive workshop, participants discuss their experiences, increase their knowledge of women’s status today, think about intersections of gender with race, ethnicity, sexuality, ability, and culture, discuss language and privilege, and practice bystander interventions. Leave with concrete tools to be more effective allies! (PLEASE NOTE: It's encouraged, but not required, that registrants for Part 2 have attended Part 1 of the workshop as well. Part 1, however, can act as a standalone.) Register online at http://workshop.umn.edu/Leadership_and_Advocacy/.
